Austere is a design company dedicated to making well crafted, beautiful and functional furniture and accessories. In the spirit of our Scandinavian heritage, we look to surround ourselves with fewer, better things.
Believing good design is a basic human right and should be available to many, we grew frustrated that shipping companies made more than the designer and that traditional retail made good design too expensive. Shopping for design is a pain. We wanted to make it painless, and maybe even fun.
To that end, Austere works with some of the leading designers in the world, selling direct-to-consumers online and through a select number of showrooms in the United States and Europe.
